Community Supported Agriculture
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from farmers in their area. Here are the basics: a farmer offers a certain number of “shares” to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share and receive a box of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season. To read more about CSAs, go to http://www.localharvest.org/csa/
Earthwise Gardens CSA is a weekly service providing members with farm-fresh, Texas-grown, organic produce every week, throughout the year. The produce is sourced from several local farms including our own gardens in Denton, which enables us to offer the best variety of items for our customers year round.
The weekly share is typically 7-9 seasonal produce items. CSA shares are picked up every week at one of our pick up locations. When you sign up online, you will pick up your first share on the next available pick up day at the pick up location of your choice. We currently have the following three pick up locations to choose from:
–Earthwise Produce Shop – 728 N. Elm Street, Denton (Thursdays 3-7pm or Saturdays 10am-3pm)
